(New York, NY) March 3, 2020: Husband and wife Americana duo, The Danberrys, officially released their single “The Mountain” in February. The song quickly drew praise, with American Songwriter noting their musical shift to an “…outlaw country style with pivoting riffs and beats.” Now, The Danberrys slow it down and explore the weight of trauma in their latest single, and album title track, “Shine”, out this Friday on all streaming platforms.

“Shine” lyrically delves into the process of healing from childhood trauma. The Danberrys carefully crafted the track to convey the mining for one’s innate divinity by mending the pain from the darkness. Reflecting on the creation of the single, Dorothy Daniel says, “‘Shine’ is about finding forgiveness when there has been no justice, no apology, no explanation – forgiveness for the sake of releasing yourself. It’s about journeying steadfastly towards the tiny seed of light within and setting it on fire. The lyrics reflect the hard-earned skill of existing in more than one place within yourself once, learning to accept and even embrace the dichotomy of darkness and light.”

Not only is “Shine” the title track off The Danberrys’ upcoming album, releasing May 8, 2020, but also the second official track release from the project. With 12 new tracks, “Shine” departs from their signature acoustic sound to capture elements of rock, blues, and folk. This new musical direction lets the pair venture into a darker atmosphere as well as allowing their self-written lyrics to stand tall. Shine will mark The Danberrys’ third full-length album.

Currently, The Danberrys are elated to release “Shine”. To continue exploring the meaning behind “Shine”, The Danberrys will be releasing a music video for the track. Directed by Scot Sax, and filmed on Dorothy Daniel’s family’s land in Charlotte, TN, the music video will depict the story of a child escaping and healing from a nightmare. Be sure to check out The Danberrys on social media and check out “Shine”, once available on all streaming platforms.

About The Danberrys
The husband and wife duo, Dorothy Daniel and Ben DeBerry, were high school sweethearts. After splitting for 5 years, each took their time honing in on their musical craft. Dorothy began writing original music and Ben became a known performer, playing in local bands and cover gigs. In July 2006, the pair crossed paths at a bar in Cookeville, TN, and married four months later.
With undeniable chemistry, Dorothy and Ben began performing together and made the move to Nashville in 2008. In 2011, they officially became The Danberrys with the release of their EP, Company Store.

The EP was a success, landing them an Independent Music Awards nomination and a spot opening for Robert Earl Keen at the Ryman Auditorium. In 2013, The Danberrys released their first full-length album, which furthered their reputation as solid roots artists and continued to earn them more IMA nominations, including a nod for Best Americana Album. Their second full-length record, Give and Receive, was released in 2016, and brought The Danberrys international attention. They quickly headed on to 3 international tours (UK 2017, NZ 2017, UK 2018) as well as more nominations with the IMA, with another nod for Best Americana Album and a win for Best Bluegrass Song for their single “Long Song”.
